I have many activities for kids on this site that focus on education.
These printables go perfectly with all of our letter of the week crafts and activities.
If you are looking for handwriting practice for kids, this will be perfect.
A is for alligator. Let’s trace our letters and learn more about the letter Aa.
You Will Need:
- Handwriting Printable for Kids: A is for Alligator <<——- click to print
- Alphabet Flip Book, optional
Print the worksheet out.
I love the big A and little a at the top left. It uses arrows to show how to make the letter Aa.
Have your preschooler follow the number order and use their finger to trace the letter.
Reference the letter in your alphabet flip book. Remind them of the sound the letter makes.
A is for alligator.
Next, have them use their pencil to trace all of the big A’s.
Then all of the little a’s.
Then trace the Aa pattern.
Then there is a blank row to write the letters again independently.
(Matthew used two permanent markers yesterday to draw all over himself….. Even after a shower there are still signs of marker. Of course this is not the first time we’ve dealt with this.)
Matthew can successfully and neatly trace his letter, but he does not always choose to. Be patient. With maturity this will change.
Here is is sweet face. Today he told me he is tired of this baby stuff preschool. He wants to go to high school now….
(See the faint sign of marker around his eyes? And on his arms? He is such a unique and wildly independent boy.)
How is homeschooling your preschooler going?
Remember, all of our children learn at their own pace.
